Annapurna Sikles Trek 16 Days

Annapurna sikles Trek is most of beautiful trekking in the Annapurna region.This treks specially we  can see beautiful gurung cultural, traditional and local people lifestyle. Annapurna Sikles Trek made us to be pride ourselves on creating new and innovative treks that break away from the norm. For this camping trek we venture into rarely visited valleys deep within the Annapurna range. Sikles Trekking leads the wilderness exploration away from traditional Gurung villages. Upper areas further of Pothana will be walking through untouched primary forest is a rare joy anyway, but in the foothills of Nepal it is exhilarating. Along the Sikles Trekking going and coming back you will encounter and experience typical cultural villages.

Sikles trek we start from Pokhara heading due north towards the holy mountain Machapuchare. Our ridgeline route offers wonderful views of the Annapurna,Dhaulagiri range,Hiuchuli and Manasulu mountain. Climbing though oak, rhododendron and bamboo forest we follow ancient trails to the Madi Khola valley and stay in the villages of Sikles, TangTing and Bhujung.

The trail follows the high alpine summer grazing route the shepherds use to herd their flocks above the tree line. The views from the ridges of the endless blue foothills as they roll southwards are unsurpassed anywhere in the country. This new trek offers a truly captivating village experience where we get to see the real rural Nepal. We camp at unique sites, eat the local dishes and witness daily life unfold around us. We also get to see a side of the Himalayas rarely seen. Nepal High Trek would like to offer this natural trekking for all clients.
